the Glory of Pramukh Swami
In his diary Yogiji Maharaj describes the day
when Shastriji Maharaj appointed Pramukh Swami as the President of the
BAPS Sanstha, "Shastriji Maharaj desired to appoint him as the president,
and thus did so in Ahmedabad. I was sitting besides Shastriji Maharaj,
who told me, 'Place your hand on his head so that he acquires the virtues
you have.' So I placed my hand on his head, whereupon Shastriji Maharaj
said, 'Having placed your hand, my hand has also been placed!' In this
way he had my hand placed and was very happy."
During the 48th birthday celebration of Pramukh Swami Maharaj in Bombay,
Yogiji Maharaj said, "Shastriji Maharaj had his divine grace upon him
since he was young. He then appointed him as the president. How much
he has increased the Satsang fellowship! Everyone should obey Pramukh
Swami Maharaj. Pramukh Swami is the manifestation (swarup) of Shastriji
Maharaj - there is not an iota of difference. Such divine feelings one
should have for him. We wish to make 700 sadhus and it will be fulfilled
by Pramukh Swami." Thus declaring Pramukh Swami as his successor Yogiji
Maharaj left this mortal world in Bombay.
Before Yogiji Maharaj departed from his earthly existence on 27 Jan
1971, he said "Pramukh Swami is my all. You will all from now onwards
experience bliss through Pramukh Swami."
Today, one experiences the divine manifestation of Lord Swaminarayan,
Shastriji Maharaj and Yogiji Maharaj through HDH Pramukh Swami Maharaj.
